Tractor Trials archive video from the 1930s - old film of working machines
"1930s Tractor Trials" DVD introduction from Primetime Video.
The World Agricultural Tractor Trials of 1930 were a major event in the
history of farm tractors in Britain. 36 tractors, from seven different
countries, ranging from massive crawlers to three motor cultivators for
market gardeners, were brought to one site in Oxfordshire.
Among the machines to be seen are five of the earliest Caterpillar models,
a four-wheel drive French Latil, three Peter Brotherhood tractors, a
Vickers Aussie, two Swedish Munktells, a Linke crawler from Gernany and
what is probably the only Hungarian-British HCSC in the world, as well as
machines from Case, Massey Harris, Marshall and one of the few failures of
the trials, the Fordson Model N, which went on to be one of the world's
most successful tractors.

Antique Tractor Universal-2 1952 for Sale
The Stalingrad and Kharkov tractor plants came into operation in the early
1930s and enabled mechanization of the most power-consuming agricultural
operations such as ploughing, sowing and harvesting. However, row crops
(sugar beet, corn, potato, cotton, etc.) were still cultivated using horsepower because
the first tractors could not be used for loosening, thinning or hilling. In
1933, the total area of row crops in USSR was 20 million hectares. Thus,
cultivating tractors were necessary.
Such a tractor was designed at the Research Institute for Tractor Building
in Moscow on the basis of the Farmall model (US). However, the new tractor
was by no means a simple copy of the original model. The design was
modified to meet Soviet production and service conditions.
The new tractor was called Universal. It had a 22 h.p. engine and its
design was simple and reliable. From 1934 to 1940, the tractor was
fabricated in Leningrad, and the second plant came into operation in
Vladimir in 1944 where the fabrication continued until 1955. A total of
210,000 Universal tractors of various modifications were produced from
1934 to 1955.
1921 International 8-16 Tractor startup
This is an original, unrestored International 8-16 complete with the
original and very rare air cleaner. The hood sheet metal was replaced,
patterned from the original, but the fenders and the rest are the real
thing. It was retired and stored inside a barn, and placed up on stones,
in the early 1950's, so the wheels are in remarkable condition. The
original paint and IH decals are still visible. As you can see, it starts
and runs well. This was filmed at the Carroll County, Ohio Algonquin Mill
Fall Festival on Sunday, Oct.11, 2009. The owner also has a 1917 tractor
of the same model as well as a growing collection of other vintage IH
tractors, as well as a variety of vintage Chevrolet, International, and
Dodge trucks, such as the Dodge seen here. The Algonquin Mill Festival is
a 3 day annual event in October-join us!

Old tractors never die! Ursus vs. Land Rover.
This film its just a little joke. Many vehicles -many uses. Tractor is
used to plow the field, all-terrain car used to efficiently off-road move.
Be aware of the differences. Different gears, tyres, motors and many
things... remember that! This is not sugestion who is better. I like all
vintage, off-road machines.
1921 Lanz Tractor Reversing Engine Rotation
This is how the early Lanz tractors reversed themselves, they only had one
gear. Moving the tractor into reverse involved throttling the engine back
until it was striking backward on compression, the jamming open the
throttle and hoping it went in the correct direction. This operation took
practice and is still hard to pull off. After the engine is running
backward, you simply engage the clutch to move backward. Pioneer Acres
